CPU Gimbap

  • Abrons Arts Center, G-05 466 Grand Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

with Taeyoon Choi,
Co-Founder of The School for Poetic Computation

5:00PM — 6:30PM
Room G-05

CPU Gimbap Workshop is a cooking class to learn the fundamentals of computation. Based on Taeyoon Choi's curriculum “CPU Dumplings” at the School for Poetic Computation, the CPU Gimbap Workshop makes its debut at HFNM 2019.  Participants perform all the operations of a CPU (Central Processing Unit) by slicing vegetables and rolling their own gimbap — a Korean dish made from rice, vegetables, and seaweed. By cooking, they become a part of a human computation that simulates a CPU instruction set. Choi, in collaboration with guest computer scientists, introduce topics including the Von Neumann architecture, ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) and CU (Control Unit), memory and storage, serial and parallel processing, and bottleneck problem. Participants have the option to make and eat vegetarian or vegan gimbap. No technical or cooking experience required. @drwngdrwng
